BALTIMORE - Authorities say a fire ripped through a northeast Baltimore home, killing one adult and four children.

Fire department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright says firefighters were called around 2 a.m. Thursday and arrived to find heavy fire and smoke coming from the first floor of the home. Cartwright says firefighters suppressed the heavy fire conditions and found the bodies of five people during a search and rescue operation.

Cartwright says one person jumped from a second-floor window to escape the blaze. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

A firefighter was also injured when he fell through the second floor of the home into the basement. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
